HOUSTON (ICIS)--INEOS Styrenics was taking down its 455,000 tonne/year styrene plant in Sarnia, Ontario, for two weeks because of unplanned mechanical issues, the company said on Thursday.
The company also said it was restarting its 485,000 tonne/year Texas City styrene plant in Texas to cover production lost from Sarnia.
